Color inspiration challenge.

This week at Fairy Fun Fridays we have a color inspiration challenge based on the picture below! I thought for sure I was done for with all the yellows, oranges, pinks & reds altogether, but upon searching through various paper holders, I found some paper that I got at the Scrapaganza (held in Stonewall, MB) that fit perfectly! As I admired the paper & thought about how sad I was that I was not going to be able to make it there this year (April 17- as I thought leaving 3 kids with dad for a 9-9'er day was simply too much).......low and behold the phone rang.................................

..............who was it on the phone you ask??!?! It was a fellow scrapper, asking me if I wanted her ticket to Scrapaganza this year! DO YOU BELIEVE IT! I was shocked, surprised, & happy thinking this was definitely a 'sign' that I am destined to go!!! So I have yet to speak with hubby about it, however, have already arranged for my mom to come watch the kids (as back up with hubby)!!! I AM SOOOOOOOOOOO SUPER EXCITED!!! Now onto my card!

The image is from Prairie Fairy Digital Stamps store and is called "Fairy Little". I was unsure as to what I was going to do with her & her reaching arms when I remembered the great purchases I made the other day while in Selkirk at Dollarama! I bought these 'paper, look-a-like rose flowers' with stems for $1.00 (6/pack). I also bought the ribbon & green pearls you see pictured as well!! Yay for me!
This is my second attempt at an Easle card & am pleased with the way it turned out!
I also searched thru various blogs in the attempt to perfect my coloring, so this is what you get! Not the greatest, but hey what do u expect from an amateur!!
I am able to enter this card in a couple other challenges including: Charisma Cardz Challenge (thank you)& Pixie Dust Studio Challenge (things with wings)!

I love how you put this all together Corry. I also must say I love your new background for your blog. We have two at our house that work into the birthday theme for April and May. My daughter yesterday and me in May.
